Do you support film music preservation?

Do you feel that rerecording is a good way to preserve film music?

Do you feel that this community has a common interest in preserving film music?

Do you believe that scores that aren't your favorites should be preserved?

Would you like other forum members to support the preservation of your favorite scores?

If you do, right now there is a Kickstarter campaign by Intrada to rerecord the score for "Dial M for Murder" that is 63% funded with less than 3 days to go. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/129145902/dial-m-for-murder-film-score-recording?ref=created_projects
Other golden and silver age scores will definitely follow if this succeeds but maybe they wouldn't if it fails.

Any amount you contribute will help and if it fails you get your money back anyway.

Would you like to help?

If it won't succeed you won't be charged your contribution...

I think you'd get more bang for your buck, in terms of preservation, if everyone looked up the libraries with composers' soundtrack tapes or acetates, picked a title and paid to have it digitized.

That's correct. You will not be charged.

I don't if that's gets you more bang for your buck but it a great idea.

Trust me, you would. We'd have a huge library in a few months. I can't afford to do it all myself. wink

Great for film music preservation, but what's in it for me? A library gets a nice digital file of music no one except some future researcher will ever hear.

Yes... good idea... but if no accetates, tapes or anything else survive, reconstructing and re-recording it is the only way... which is the case with Dial M for Murder... IF some miracle actually happens and it reaches its goal....

Either it gets funded or it will remain lost forever.

Bob, Bob, Bob...obviously you get a digital file, too. The libraries that don't share with patrons probably wouldn't digitize the tapes in the first place (except for Brigham Young).

It's too much for a single individual who isn't independently wealthy. That's why Intrada picks one score at a time to preserve.

This is not the way to cheerlead a crowd-funding campaign and it usually has the opposite effect and is not coming from the entity that should be cheerleading.

Is that true? I guess you would know.

Thanks

Believe me, I do know. They have two days left. At this point, the chips are going to fall where they may, either yay or nay.

Bruce, your indiegogo campaign was a great success for us and soundtrack preservation. Not sure if it helped your bank account after all the free shipping and work needed to keep track of everyone's orders/donations over time.

Isn't there already a long thread about the Intrada Kickstarter campaign thingie? Confused as to why a new one is started here.

As to the topic of preservation, yes of course I support preservation of cultural artifacts, including film scores.

But it's not something that's related to my soundtrack listening. I don't listen to soundtracks for archeological or philanthropical reasons -- I listen only for musical value and interest. So I'm not likely to finance or support projects of this kind that don't have any musical, personal value to me. If the project had been Williams' STORY OF A WOMAN, I would probably have supported it. For Tiomkin's DIAL M FOR MURDER? Unfortunately not.

You could just say you gave.
